It seems like this season is all about sleeves for me.
Last week I’ve shown you my latestet addiction to trumpet sleeves and this week it’s about short sleeves.
But anyway: the idea of a short sleeved coat seemed to be a huge thing for me since Carrie Bradshaw showed up in a wonderful short sleeved suede jacket in season 6, episode 14, minute 15 (as you may have noticed now: I really love SATC, it’s always amazing how many outfit ideas you get while watching the series over and over again – you can say it’s one of my biggest inspirations so far! 😀 )
I love how she looks in this scene: she wears a ponytail, long rosé colored leather gloves and this wonderful jacket. Since I’ve seen this scene for the first time the image of that look was burned inside my brain and as I saw the H&M Studio Collection coat it was like meant to be that I have to buy this coat.
First of all: I totally love long gloves – it’s a timeless, elegant and feminie piece which every woman should consider of adding to her wardrobe.
Seriously: when it’s autumn or winter and you want to add a little highlight to your look – go for long gloves! 😉
As it was pretty cold during the last weeks in Munich the solution to create an autumn friendly coat look was to go half-half, as you may call it: one half of my arm was covered by the coat, the other by warm gloves, so it forms like a tiny gap between these two components. And I think that this little gap makes this look so wonderful. I liked the idea of putting this little piece of skin into scene so I wore a half-transparent mesh body with little dots on it, thinking it would be more of an eyecatcher instead of showing my naked, bare skin.
I know it’s little early to show a look which seems to be all coated-up, but I like the outcome anyway.
Whising you guys all a wonderful and lovely week!
